Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Casita. It

was peaceful and well appointed and the Montoyas

made us feel very welcome. The walking path and

the animals were a bonus. It was perfectly located

to visit our extended family who live nearby and the

Casita itself was large enough for us to live in with

our out-of-state relatives and not feel crowded.

A great house

  • 5 of 5

I am always suspect of a house that only gets 5 star reviews, but here I am, giving it a 5 star review. I would definitely stay here again. The house was clean and well kept. It was also pleasantly furnished with plenty of linens.

There were only 4 adults, but it was perfect, because we each had our own bedroom, and space. With three baths and a spacious home we had more room than we needed. As the only female., I took the "west wing" where the kids room and family room are. The guys took the other three bedrooms. The master had a king, one other bedroom had a king, 3rd bedroom had 2 queens. The bunk room slept 6, and there was a kids TV room in addition to the family room and formal living room. The kitchen was well stocked and I was a able to cook without any trouble. I also was able to do my laundry before departing, with the washer/dryer conveniently located in the kitchen.

I enjoyed the property and the farm animals since I live in Houston where we don't have animals. The dogs and cats on the property were friendly, and the owner was very accommodating. There is plenty of outdoor space, and I can see this property as a great place for a family reunion. The kids would have a ball!

We had someone who was not able to walk very far, and needed a wheelchair. We were able to get him in through the family room door, and there were only 2 steps to the kitchen and main level, which he was able to negotiate.

The house had beds to sleep 14 without anyone on a couch.

Kids loved it. Close to Balloon Fiesta Park.

  • 5 of 5

Needed a place good for kids and close to Balloon Fiesta Park for the 2015 Junior Olympic Cross Country Championship. Found the perfect place! I could go on and on, but I think the other reviews cover the accolades nicely. I will add that the house is a short drive to the Sandia Pueblo train station, which we used for a fun day trip to Sante Fe. This VRBO exemplifies what is great about VRBO. I doubt we'll ever stay in hotels on vacation again!

Spacious and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family's 10 week stay in Albuquerque. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating whenever we had questions or a problem arose. It felt very safe and secure. My son loved all of the farm animals and it was very neat to see the baby calf after it was born. The house is huge and it was perfect for when we had guests over. It was close to everything. I would recommend this property to large parties, especially those with children. The price was also very reasonable.

Balloon Fiesta & 50th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to view the Balloon Ascension for anyone coming to watch the balloons without having to fight the traffic. It is also an over the top place to come with families, we had my 2 daughters and their families come to celebrate my 50th birthday. The kids loved it and we were able to cook in the large galley style kitchen as well as grill outside. The owners were very accomodating to any special requests we had. Grocery stores were nearby. I would definitely come back when I had an opportunity and have recommended this place to several of our friends.

The accommodations were excellent. Michael,Jill and family could not have been more friendlier or helpful. Ours was a golfing vacation and there are many fine courses in the area. (do no pass up a chance to play Paako). I highly recommend their rental for any type of vacation.

Spacious and very private!

  • 5 of 5

Driving to this place the first time was eeky because our gps took us to an industrial, not so nice area in order to get here. But the fact is, there is a better way to get in and out of this place that will get you to the freeway in 1 minute! The place is a huge compound therefore it felt so private and I feel safe that my son can play and ride the bike (they provided the bike too!) without having to worry. The Montoya kids were sooo friendly and my son played with them so well. He keeps asking when we're going back to see his friend Luke. The owners Jill and Micheal were so accommodating as well and very down to earth people. We enjoyed the farm animals, the playhouse in the backyard and jogging path surrounding the property. The house itself was clean and very spacious!! we did not need to use the AC, the tv or washing machines but they have it for your convenience. I'm so glad they let us stay here since there's only 2 adult, 1 child but the place can hold bazillions! 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms we didn't even use...like I said, this place has space!! Very good for large groups. Also, you'll fall in love with their huge dog Samson who got along very well with my dog Diesel. We will stay here again whenever we are in ABQ.
